LEATHER & DENIM

WHISTLES JACKET// CHARITY SHOP SHIRT// LEVI SHORTS// ZARA SLIDERS// ASOS SUNGLASSES

This post is literally racing against the clock as I have to be off to work in less than 10 minutes, so I am going to keep it short and sweet! I have wanted to do a white shirt and denim look for a while now as it's so timeless and fresh for summer. I'm sure anyone who has seen my recent blogpost's must be so sick of seeing me wear these ASOS cateye sunglasses, but I just cannot seem to get enough! Rain, sun, heck, even snow I am going to be wearing them. You know when you find an accessory that just complete's every outfit you put together? These are the accessory.

BRETON

                  
TOPSHOP DRESS// H&M COAT// ASOS SUNGLASSES// ADIDAS TRAINERS// "MORANGE" MAC LIPSTICK

I just wanted to do a quick blogpost on how I'm styling these Adidas Superstars at the moment. Although I am pairing them with jeans quite a bit, they also look pretty sweet with dresses on a summers day. Perhaps ditch the massive black coat in scorching weather, but as you can tell by the different lighting exposures in my photos, the weather was being pretty unpredictable today!

NOT SO MELLOW YELLOW


 WHISTLES JUMPER// ZARA SKORT// MANGO COAT// PRIMARK BAG// ARK BOOTS

Well this is a little new (colour that is). I have a lot of love for this Whistles jumper, not just because I can't get lost in big crowds whilst wearing it (small girl problems) but because the quality and structure is amazing. It has to be the brightest thing in my cupboard, but it is also one of my favourite items of clothing I own.

PJ PARTY


 

H&M WIDE LEGGED TROUSERS, SLIDERS & HAT// MISSGUIDED TOP// ASOS SUNGLASSES// VINTAGE BAG

I never jumped on the band wagon of 'under wear' being the new 'outerwear' but Pyjamas as being the new outerwear on the other hand, is a trend I would happily take to the extreme. I feel silk pyjamas is a luxury that should be taken out of the bedroom and into the daylight, who's with me? I couldn't resist the idea of walking around in Pjays all day, so I quickly nabbed these H&M wide legged beauties. I almost punched the air with excitement when I saw that they were only £14.99.

MAN REPELLER







H&M DRESS & RINGS (LEFT HAND)// ASOS DUSTER COAT// RAYBAN SUNGLASSES// PRIMARK BAG// BIRKENSTOCK SANDALS// FASHIONOLGY RINGS (RIGHT HAND)


Oversized jacket, over sized dress and Birkenstocks!? I think this optimises a 'man repelling' outfit down to a T. I cannot get enough of oversized clothing, which shouldn't be the case since I am a petite being. 

I have finally tied down an oversized slip dress in H&M for a steal of £7.99! Along with this Primark bag which was £8. Yesterday was a good day for bargains.

SUPERSTAR


         







ZARA SHIRT// ARK JEANS// H&M CLUTCH// ASOS SUNGLASSES// ADIDAS TRAINERS

It's safe to say that I have a borderline obsession over all white trainers at the moment. The whiter/ cleaner the better. I am not even ashamed to admit that I try and keep my white trainers in pristine condition by meticulously cleaning them before putting them away. I remember way back in the day when it was classed 'un-cool' to have fluorescent white kicks, so I would purposely rub them in some dirt before parading around the playground with them. Now I just shudder at the thought.

Times like these I am so grateful to have a twin sister who shares a similar fashion sense as I and also shares the same dress and shoe size. We both have had our eyes on some Adidas Superstars, so I am just thankful that she is a saver (whilst I am a spender) and could buy a pair so I could get to borrow them (muhaha). 

Something to add to the summer playlist:

PRINTED PALAZZO




1. MATALAN BAG// SUNGLASSES// MISSGUIDED TOP//2.  MONKI TROUSERS// H&M COAT// ZARA SLIDERS

1. Looking back at these pictures, I'm kind of annoyed I didn't get a close up of my bag so you can see the detail. I bought this bag a couple of weeks ago when my mum dragged me to Matalan so I could help her buy some clothes for my brother (he is 23 years old may I add...). Not usually a 'bag-kinda-gal', I was instantly drawn to it as it looked a lot more expensive than £10! It reminds me a lot of a bag you would get from Zara, which obviously, sold me very quickly. So get yourself down to Matalan for a great Zara dupe! 

 2. I got these Monki trousers along with my ASOS haul I was bangin' on about in yesterdays post. I had been on the hunt for a good pair of printed palazzo trousers for a while so these fit the bill perfectly. I am now banishing my skinny jeans during the summer. These bad boys kept me cool all day.

CAT EYE







ASOS DUSTER COAT, SHORTS & SUNGLASSES// H&M TOP, SLIDERS & BAG

(Whilst writing this post, I am currently sitting on my floor staring at my internet rooter, wanting to do very violent things to it, so apologies if any of my passive aggressiveness filters through..) 

Well hi there little blog, I have not seen you in a while. Now that my first year at University is done and I have nearly nursed my week long hangover back to health, I am ready to focus on pushing my blog that little bit further this summer (Eek, just typing to word 'summer' is making me giddy. Also now that my twinny is back, my double wardrobe is back. The perks of being a twin). 

As the sun was blaring today, it felt only appropriate to whack out some white linen (queue my inner Mum fashion sense again..). I know that anyone who is reading this will agree with me when I say: white linen are for the summer tanning-phobes, but I was instantly drawn to these shorts in the ASOS sale. I love the slightly scalloped detail. Along with my ASOS haul I picked up some tortoise cat eye sunglasses which have been on my wish list for a while. Cat eye sunglasses always make me feel sassy. You gotta have a bit of sass' on a sunny day.
